IN THIS EPISODE OF THE HUMAN UPGRADE...
If you find yourself deeply questioning parts of your life that you haven’t before, you’re not alone. People are asking more existential questions about their lives than they were two years ago, and Jonathan Fields joins the show to guide you through some answers.
Jonathan maximizes human potential, especially in the realm of meaningful work. He’s the bestselling author of four books on self-development, most recently “Sparked: Discover Your Unique Imprint for Work that Makes You Come Alive.” He also hosts the popular Good Life Project podcast.
“I started into this topic two decades ago,” Jonathan says. “The fact that the last two years have dropped literally the entire world into the biggest existential questioning in generations is not something that I saw coming. But we are in that place, as we sit here depending on the research that you look at, anywhere from 25 to 50 percent of people either have quit their jobs or are in the process of quitting or seriously considering it.”
He aims to help people realign the work they’re paid to do, with the actual work that nourishes them through something called Sparketypes. They’re the 10 different archetypes that are sparked by different kinds of work. You may be a maven, maker, scientist, essentialist, performer, sage, warrior, advisor, advocate or nurturer.

Once you determine your particular Sparketype, it can be easier to find work that lights you up. Knowing your Sparketype also can lessen the fear of a career pivot and show you how to take your enthusiasm for one passion into a different line of work. You then can confidently build a career with a sense of purpose and direction.
“[People] may not know what the bargain is that they want to step into,” Jonathan explains. “But what they're getting clear on is the fact that the way that work has made them feel has satisfied certain needs, for sure, security, safety. The more existential needs, which tend to really become more important when we get a little bit further in life, those have generally been set aside. Part of that bargain was maybe later. Later is here.”
